Virtual Reality

Nowadays you can do EVERYTHING on the web - pay your bills, communicate with loved ones, take classes, find a soulmate, look up naked pics of your favorite celebs, get directions etc etc. Until recently my job was to manage online communities of practice for development professionals. When I bought my tiny birdcage-like condo, I sold my mish mash furniture on Craigslist (make sure you add the "s". Otherwise you will land on a porn site called criaglist) and bought brand new ones from Overstock. I also love blogging and keeping in touch with friends half the way across the world via Friendster or MSN messenger. I thought we had reached the edge of the cyber world when Pizza Hut started accepting online orders (I tried it just for kicks and it works!!!). But wait..... There's more.....

Now you can get a divorce at the click of a button. Here's what I found:

"Divorce doesn't have to be difficult. Begin your divorce online.™ is North America's premier affordable divorce service center. Our simple and inexpensive process will enable you to complete your divorce documents from the comfort of your home, without incurring the cost of an attorney, or dealing with lengthy completion and delivery periods. The total cost is $249.00."

Well, I guess it is "normal" afterall. If you can file taxes online, you should be able to file for a divorce over the Internet as well.
